UTEX 187
Ankistrodesmus braunii

ATTENTION:

Due to the upcoming 2018 Winter Holiday closures, orders placed after the stated deadlines will not ship until 2019 (review expected shipping estimates).

*Cryo Only cultures are strains that are not kept in active circulation and therefore require a 4-week minimum processing time period to thaw, grow out, and check viability before shipment.



Algae Detail

UTEX Number: 187
Class: Chlorophyceae
Strain: Ankistrodesmus braunii
Media: Proteose Medium
Origin: Cambridge, England
Description of Location: Madingley Brick Pits
Type Culture: No
Collection: T. Christensen (1949)
Isolation: E.A. George (1950)
Isolator Number:
Deposition: CCAP (1952-5)
Relatives: CCAP 202/9; SAG 202-9; ATCC 30447; IAM C-90
Also Known As: A. falcutus var. duplex; A. falcatus
Notes: 1976 renamed (George 1976)

Cryopreservation Conditions

Temperature: -190 °C
Light source: Not Applicable
Intensity: Not Applicable
Periodicity: Not Applicable

Cryopreservation stabilizes genomic integrity, preserves culture quality, minimizes maintenance costs and reduces the risk of catastrophic loss. A broad variety of techniques employed at the CCAP, at UTEX, and elsewhere, can be found in Day, J.G. and Brand, J.J. Cryopreservation Methods for Maintaining Microalgal Cultures, in Algal Culturing Techniques, ed. R. A. Andersen, Elsevier, Amsterdam, 2006. A relatively simple method that uses a minimum of specialized equipment, yet allows a large variety of microalgae to be cryopreserved with high viability, can be found on the Cryopreservation of Microalgae page.
